The match was very intense at the start with a handful of Moors players contesting many refereeing decision.
Grimsby, however, started the game focused and created two chances. They were playing their first match under the supervision of a new coach, who is looking forward to help Grimsby get out of the position they are at.
As the match went on, Moorlands players were still not focused and talking to the referee. 15 minutes after the start and the score was still 0-0.
Moorlands new striker Adam Croft and new goal keeper Garry Doran were the fresh faces. Fairweather is confident the 19 year old forward Croft will get him the win Moorlands are looking for.

Then came a counter attack for Grimsby’s Lee Croft who shot but the Moorlands keeper pushed it away for a corner kick.
